Elijah & Elisha: The Mantle for God’s People

Elijah & Elisha: The Mantle for God’s People

Russell M. Stendal

The kings of Israel and Judah were in serious trouble with the Lord. Twelve years of worshiping Baal and golden calves, listening to Jezebel, and killing the prophets was catching up to them. Their earthly kingdoms were coming to an end, and the Lord would move quickly when he moved. What appeared to be harmless details to them was in fact rebellion in the sight of God.

While the kings served the gods of this world, Elijah and Elisha did not. They were dedicated only to the Word of the Lord, and if the Lord didn’t speak directly to them, they didn’t move at all. And when they did move, it was with the authority of the Lord, resulting in dramatic calling down of fire from heaven, a three-year drought, people raised from the dead, and many other miraculous events. But did Elijah and Elisha take any glory? No, Elisha didn’t even accept Naaman’s token of appreciate – so completely was he relying only on the Lord’s provision.

The lives of Elijah and Elisha, as well as the corrupt lives of the kings, serve as important lessons for us today. In addition, there are many prophecies in 1 and 2 Kings that are now being fulfilled. Your own life will be changed forever if you apply even one truth that the Lord reveals to you in this book.

America: The Last Best Hope (Volume I): From the Age of Discovery to a World at War

America: The Last Best Hope (Volume I): From the Age of Discovery to a World at War

William J. Bennett

America, how well do you know your history?

Who quelled a coup d’etat by putting on a pair of reading glasses?
Which U.S. senator was nearly caned to death on the Senate floor?
Which first lady refused to serve alcohol in the White House?
What famous inventor was called to find the assassin’s bullet in President Garfield’s back?
Which successful candidate for president insisted on telling the truth about his sex scandal?
Which beloved ex-president raced with death and poverty to write his best-selling memoirs and which famous humorist came to his rescue?
Which president carefully read the trial notes of 303 condemned Sioux warriors and spared all but 38 from the hangman’s noose?
Which “four-eyed” future president beat up a drunken bully in a saloon?

In his Farewell Address, Ronald Reagan said if we forget what we have done, we will forget who we are. This book, written by one of Reagan’s most loyal lieutenants, responds to Reagan’s heartfelt call for an informed patriotism.

We all need to know more about this land we love. In this gripping tale of a nation, our country’s past comes alive. Here is the story of those we chose to lead us and what they did with the awesome power we gave them. Join Bill Bennett for the great adventure. America’s teacher will lead you on a voyage of discovery.

What others are saying:

“William J. Bennett artfully and subtly makes connections between our past and current events, reminding us … that we are intimately and immediately connected to the extraordinary Americans who have bestowed upon us our great heritage…. [T]he importance of America: The Last Best Hope probably exceeds anything Dr. Bennett has ever written, and it is more elegantly crafted and eminently readable than any comprehensive work of history I’ve read in a very long time. It’s silly to compare great works of history to great novels, but this book truly is a page-turner…. Prepare to have your faith in, hope for, and love of America renewed.”
-Brad Miner, American Compass

“The Role of history is to inform, inspire, and sometimes provoke us, which is why Bill Bennett’s wonderfully readable book is so important. He puts our nation’s triumphs, along with its lapses, into the context of a narrative about the progress of freedom. Every now and then it’s useful to be reminded that we are a fortunate people, blessed with generations of leaders who repeatedly renewed the meaning of America.”
-Walter Isaacson, Benjamin Franklin: An American Life

“For too long Americans have been looking for a history of our country that tells the story of America’s triumphs as well as its tragedies. Now Bill Bennett has come forward with America: The Last Best Hope, which tells the story-fairly and fully-from 1492 to 1914. Americans who have been reading recent biographies of the Founding Fathers will love this book.”
-Michael Barone, US News & World Report

“Bill Bennett’s book will stand as perhaps the most important addition to American scholarship at this, the start of the new century. For the past fifty years American historians have either distorted American history or reduced it to a mess of boring indictments of our cultural and political heritage. With this book Bennett offers to Americans young and old an exciting and enjoyable history of what makes America the greatest nation on earth.
-Brian Kennedy, president, The Claremont Institute

Walking from East to West: God in the Shadows

Walking from East to West: God in the Shadows

Ravi Zacharias

Ravi Zacharias was born in India and has literally moved from the East to the West and the West to the East and repeated the cycle again and again to answer skeptics’ questions about whether God is alive, who Jesus is, what is truth, and whether we can really find absolutes. Ravi has spoken of his own journey only in bits and pieces in his other books and talks. It is a journey that has led him beyond his family and culture into a revelation that replaced pantheism with monotheism, and into a relationship with a God the vast majority of his people do not worship. From this new understanding birthed in him by the founder of Christianity, Ravi has gone forward to teach as one of our generation’s great apologists.A life lived in Christ is the greatest argument of all for the living God. Ravi urges the reader to look at the lives that have turned the hearts of people into movements for Christ. In the first three centuries of the church, the Apostles and followers like Polycarp and Tertullian and Origen demonstrated with their lives the truth of the resurrected Christ. A whole line of witnesses from every generation succeeded these who walked in the footsteps of Jesus, with names like Augustine, Catherine of Sienna, Bernard of Clairvaux, Luther, and Wesley leading the procession.But history begins on an individual level.Ravi shows readers his life, in its successes and failures, in its existence in the East and in the West, and in his attempts to bring the truth of Christ to those in any culture who don’t know him. The Hebrew poet has said that a life rich in experiences is a life from which others can learn.This book is about Ravi’s journey, from meaninglessness to the abundant joy of Christ, from East to West and back again, in the all-consuming passion of letting the world know about true freedom, and in whom that freedom is found.

A Year with G. K. Chesterton: 365 Days of Wisdom, Wit, and Wonder

A Year with G. K. Chesterton: 365 Days of Wisdom, Wit, and Wonder

Kevin Belmonte

“A Year with G.K. Chesterton will be a treasure, both for those who are coming to his wit and wisdom as a fresh discovery, and for those who have known and loved his work for years. . . . Chesterton’s talent for paradox, and his ability to embody profound truth in simple images, makes him as compelling now as he was a hundred years ago. . . . He was a prophet in his own time and a prophet for ours, speaking out against insidious evils and kindling us all again to a common love of the common good.”

—The Reverend Dr. Malcolm Guite, chaplain of Girton College, Cambridge University

“This world of ours has some purpose; and if there is a purpose, there is a Person. I had always felt life first as a story: and if there is a story, there is a Storyteller.”

—G. K. Chesterton

A Year with G. K. Chesterton daily brings this truth to life. And we are heir to the winsome, arresting, utterly original outpouring of Chesterton’s reasons for hope. During his lifetime, a host of perspectives clamored for his attention, but he saw nothing as vital and alive as Christianity. Readers of this book will find their faith strengthened and enriched, even as they see the many reasons why George Bernard Shaw called Chesterton “a colossal genius.”

A true anthology, the best of Chesterton’s many works are presented in concise, memorable selections. From New Year’s Day to New Year’s Eve, each page contains a passage of Scripture and myriad moments for reflection, appreciation, and laughter.

“Chesterton once a day? Well, that’s a start. It is good to see that someone is finally recognizing the need for a daily minimum requirement of mirth and meditation from GKC.”
—Dale Ahlquist, President, American Chesterton Society

“Kevin Belmonte writes in the preface to this excellent book that his editing of it has been a gift. As an author who has written regularly on Chesterton I can understand his sense of gratitude at having been able to spend so much time with a genius as genial as the great GKC. Thanks to Belmonte’s labor of love we can all spend a few moments of every day of the year in Chesterton’s inimitable company. All admirers of Chesterton and the Christian truth he explicates so sublimely will be grateful to Kevin Belmonte for this gem of a gift.”
—Joseph Pearce, author of Wisdom and Innocence: A Life of G. K. Chesterton

“Who could not be grateful for a year spent with GKC? The great subverter of everything taken for granted, he stretches and deepens us with his insights, shakes us with his startling paradoxes and delights us with his wit. Thank God there is no getting to the end of Chesterton.”
—Os Guinness, author of A Free People’s Suicide
